And i want to understand how EIGRP redistribute with IGRP the routes...

Re: Multiple ASes

Hi,

EIGRP multiple ASs are used in designs when it is required to partition your AS, into smaller parts for design consideration, a single EIGRP process is analogous to an area of a link-state protocol. Multiple routing processes can be configured to achieve a hierarchy.

You can configure more than one EIGRP autonomous system on the same router, but Cisco does not recommend it. Multiple EIGRP autonomous systems on the same router that use mutual redistribution can cause discrepancies in the EIGRP topology table. Cisco recommends you configure only one EIGRP autonomous system in any single autonomous system.

Re: Multiple ASes

Hi Ibrahim,

EIGRP supports multiple AS --> You can run multiple EIGRP process using different AS number for each process (up to 30 per a single router) - The process ID or the AS may be any number between 1 and 65535.

Automatic redistribution occurs between EIGRP and IGRP within the same autonomous system - if both have the same AS.
